This event coincides with International Women’s Day and is part of the Leeds Cultural Conversations series
Presented by Professor Jayne Raisborough
Why does dieting dominate most women’s lives? We explore how slimness shifted from being a sign of illness to a symbol of emancipation before discussing more recent understandings of slenderness as a guarantee of fitness and health. The diet industry is worth over £2 billion pounds in the UK and yet there is little evidence that diets and other anti-fat measures work. This talk calls out the harms of dieting and shares research findings to help us find better relationships with our bodies.
